Re: Need some advice on a build?
I don't know the conversion rate but I can say with certainty £500 wil not get you an i7 with 16GB of RAM and a good video card.
You need to adjust one of two things, your goals or budget.
What would be more doable is an i5 with 8GB of RAM and you could still get a good video card that will play modern games at 19200x1080 with a high level of detail.
The i5-3570K is the go to processor for gaming. If you want similar performance in heavily threaded workloads and save some money, you could go with the AMD FX-8350.
When it comes to gaming, it's hard to tell the difference between the 3570K and the 8350.
The 8350 does use more power and generates more heath though.
FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0
